Teak Root Furniture proving very popular!

This unusual range of furniture is made from teak roots recovered from land which has been replanted so is very eco-friendly!  Each piece is completely individual due to the unique nature of each teak root!

A customer sent us this image of his new set of teak root benches with a teak root ball foot coffee table that we delivered recently. You can use teak oil to help protect them or yacht varnish for a really classy finish.

We Found A Tortoise At Rooks Barn

It’s not everyday that you see a tortoise wandering around on it’s own but that’s just what happened to us recently.   The little chap had decided to go on an adventure and was spotted in our yard, he was lucky not to be squished by a car so we promptly popped him into a box and he had a feast on some salad we donated from out lunch boxes!

Now, what on earth were we going to do with it?  We informed people locally about it and we took it home overnight to the delight of our new puppy Aruba who immediately thought he had gained a rather humorous playmate.

This video is her attempting to get the tortoise to move just a little faster…  The tortoise was happily reunited with her owner!

New Garden Teak Website A Success!

Teak Garden Furniture Bench Table and Chair Set

After launching our new outdoor teak furniture web site in April we are pleased to say it has been a great success!

We have been sending teak table and chair sets and benches all around the country! Including to Mrs Kelly in Boston, Lincolnshire, who had this to say:

‘Recently delivered table and chairs look fabulous, quality hard to beat. The help provided by Martin and Will was invaluable and they clearly want their customers to be satisfied. I will recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you’.

The teak banana benches have proved very popular as extra seating for the extending tables, as shown in the photograph above of another happy customer’s outdoor dining set in their ‘bus stop’ in Dunsfold, Surrey!

Here’s to a long warm Indian summer!


How to care for garden teak furniture

Teak requires very little care and no preservatives or treatment of any kind to protect it from the elements. When left outdoors and untreated, natural teak will gradually weather to an elegant silver-grey patina. Teak left in this natural state is easily maintained and only requires periodic cleaning.
